I know, I know - many people turn away (or even run) from the good word, but for those who know Christ will know and appreciate my blog. I won't judge anyone, but I would appreciate it if negative comments are kept off my post.
My inner peace comes from knowing Christ. Before last week, I have always said my prayers in bed because my knees would hurt from kneeling.
Well, I tried something new last week. I started to kneel while I said my prayers. Sure, it hurt for the first couple of days - but that pain went away! Of course, I give all the credit to the dear Lord who keeps making me stronger everyday.
When life seems to turn your world upside-down - look and even fight to find your inner peace. I speak from experience - it's worth the fight!
Run a good race... for the heavenly rewards are definitely worth it!
And remember, it's not about you - it's all about Christ. He gave up his life for us under the worst kind of torture imaginable. So, when I think about my hurting knees - I think how trivial my little aches and pains really are.
May God bless each and every one of you as you run your own race!
